Lit Motors, whose office we visited last month, have now released video of how their C1 Electric Cycle will work.
The concept video shows scale prototypes of the enclosed electric cycle being hit from the side and amazingly not falling down.
Lit is using a flywheel based gyroscope system that will keep the bike on two wheels at all times. The C1 is intended as a commuter vehicle, so unlike other motorcycles it is fully enclosed to protect the rider.
The C1 will also feature a Formula One-inspired Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) that will collect energy from braking and utilise it in powering various aspects of the vehicle, like the gyroscopes that keep it upright, even while parked.
Seeing it in motion reminds us of the Carver, a three-wheeled Dutch car/motorcycle hybrid (watch a video of it here via YouTube).
Plans call for a range of models to be offered, with prices starting around $24,000 when it goes on sale in late 2013.
